We hired John and John Jr. to oversee the construction of our Westport waterfront house. We are heading for the finish line and, from the get-go, our experience has been entirely positive. The Snellmans have built relationships over decades with an incredibly talented and reliable group of subcontractors and suppliers. They have the experience, and the relationships with subs and suppliers, to keep the project moving on schedule. Quality is 100% first-rate. They have made suggestions for design changes, and solutions to unanticipated design challenges, that really enhanced the project. They are fully transparent on project finances and issues, and totally responsive to our questions and needs. They give us advice on design or other choices with our best interests in mind, and their suggestions save us money more often than not. They have even helped us deal quickly and easily with maintenance problems at our existing home, which is making the sale process much easier.
To sum it up, they are incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in what they do, trustworthy to a fault, and a lot of fun to be around (an important issue when you consider how many hours you will spend with your contractor). They are truly dedicated to creating satisfied customers. As John, Jr. likes to say: “If you like it, I love it!”

I believe Snellman Construction Inc. builds beautiful homes with quality and not quantity in mind.
From overseas, we bought with them because they design and build unique houses where no two look alike. I didn’t want a new house that was architecturally similar to my neighbors like other builders create. My home is grand and one of a kind.
To buy an unfinished house from across the world and believe it would be built to the degree of excellence as promised takes a lot of trust. Communicating with a family business and not a construction company made every step our new home very easy.
Our result has been a home with detailed millinery work, top of the line insulation, security and appliances and a relationship with my builder that if anything goes wrong they are only a phone call away.

I am writing in thanks for the job your company did in renovating my home. When we bought our house a few years back I wasn’t sure we could ever raise three boys here and have enough room to change our minds. You’ve gone far beyond my expectations as far as taking our budget and turning it into the house of our dreams. The whole process from start to finish was made very simple with John Sr’s and John Jr.’s experience and enthusiasm. Our house is now the home we always wanted. Thank you!!!

In June 2007, my wife and I purchased a new home from John Snellman. After endless years of searching for the “perfect home”, we finally found it. As our family grew, so did our needs. The house that John built fulfilled everything we were looking for. We were looking for a home where our family could grow and create endless memories in the years to come. From the moment we walked through the door we wouldn’t have changed a thing from John’s design. The layout was perfect for a small family get together or for large gatherings. We were speechless; it was truly our dream home. Over the past year, we have had many people in and out of our home and the overall opinion/comments are always the same, “this house is spectacular”, “a dream home”. Guests compliment us on the quality of the millwork and craftsmanship of every little detail. On more than one occasion we have been asked by guests for the builder’s name, people were so impressed.
Since we moved in, John has been there every step of the way. The relationship did not end at the purchase and the closing of our home; it was just the beginning. Any question or need that we had, John has answered personally. John takes great pride in his work and in the homes that he has built. He has been building homes locally for many years and that success and longevity he enjoys would not be accomplished if his work did not speak for itself. I would highly recommend John Snellman and Snellman Construction.
If you would like to see for yourself, please contact John. My wife and I would be more than happy to give you and your family a tour our home. Once you see the finished product of a Snellman built home, the only question left is “where John will build yours?”

Snellman Construction, a father-son team, have given us the best house-building experience we have ever had (built 2 in the past). From start to finish, all plans were transparent, we were always included in the decision making, our input was valued and they were flexible in accommodating our ideas in the process.
Snellman Construction is a builder who values impeccable quality in their product, does not compromise aesthetics for savings but has a propensity for value. With decades of experience, and now designated as an Energy Efficient builder, I believe Snellman Construction is the best choice for building the home of your dreams!

I really enjoyed building our new home with the Snellmans. The house is rock solid, the finishes are excellent and everyone says “Wow!” When they see it. I wish we could build another one with John Sr. and John Jr.; I completely trust them and I love the outcome.
